1  Economy / Gambling discussion / Re: How to manage gambling winnings on: Today at 06:12:44 PM
even though there will be a desire to continue gambling, we must be able to suppress it so that we can use the winnings well rather than gamble again. By doing things like that, we can think of something that can benefit us in the future. Having an investment is the right thing to do, so we can try to find it and start investing some money to make future profits.
It's hard to suppress that desire and urge to gamble with the money that you've won in gambling and this is the reason why most gamblers aren't able to do it. Some gamblers can barely spare a buck from what they manage to win no matter how much money it is because they lack self-control and always give up against the urge to gamble.

So, only responsible gamblers with a great level of patience and self-control can be able to use their gambling winnings to do something useful for themselves so that they can benefit from it in the future. As you said, the best way to use the money is to make investments or start a small business if the money is enough for that.
2  Economy / Gambling / Re: What do you want to see in casino reviews? on: Today at 05:39:03 PM
Regarding that specific issue concerning about being paid or not, I doubt that most good reviews are paid.

The promoted site itself might not even recognize or know some of the game review sites. Generally speaking, most review sites need to have a good set of reviews shown on their site as they are also marketing their affiliate link. Referrals are required to have a real deposit on that site before the commission will be received by the promoter.

If these review sites lure their visitors to a bad site, then they are just wasting time on managing their review sites. What's the sense?
That's a good point. If a review website is posting paid reviews to promote platforms that aren't good but they are representing them as good platforms, they won't get much benefit from this because they will only get a one-time payment from the platform to post the review but if they promote legit services and platforms, they will keep getting benefits from their referrals that they have got through their affiliate links because whenever one makes a deposit and gambles with it, they will get their commission for it.

However, those who have the aim of posting paid reviews and stuff will not understand this because they only see the money they are getting from the platforms for posting good reviews about them and they don't care about people joining the websites through them.
3  Economy / Trading Discussion / Re: NOT BUYING ANY COIN, BUT STILL TRADING on: Today at 03:42:02 PM
it is good to know that options is part of future trading on exchanges that I have seen. It is also a derivative market trading. That is what most people do not know. But to me it is just gambling.
But, I believe that options trading cannot be a part of futures trading because, in futures, you still buy and hold positions for a certain amount of time, while in options trading, you don't buy anything but simply predict the future outcome of an asset whether it will go up or go down in the next 30 seconds, 1 minutes, 2 minutes, or any timeframe that you choose based on your personal preferences and understanding of the market.

Futures trading is risky, of course, and someone without much knowledge and experience about the market can barely earn a profit from it, losing your capital and getting liquidated are always available possibilities. However, options trading is way riskier than it because you are straight up gambling with your money on the market and we all know how unpredictable the market gets most of the time.
4  Economy / Gambling discussion / Re: UEFA Champions League 2023/24 Season on: Today at 03:06:52 PM
Actually the performance of Atletico Madrid last night was terrible, I think this was their worst performance I have seen them in throughout this year champions league, just look at the stat, Atletico Madrid had no shot on target, but I still feels like due to the fact that inter Milan fail to kill this game off, Atletico Madrid can still come back into the game in the reverse fixtures of this contest.

Though this contest is still very open, it just one nil, so their is a high possibility that Atletico Madrid can turn this tie around in their home turf, but if inter Milan can put in the same performance as yesterday, I didn't think they can be defeated by Atletico Madrid.
Here I agree but I am still considering Atlético Madrid as lucky because with this performance I was expecting them to concede few more goals, but sadly they have deficit of only one goal which is surely good for them and second leg game which is now going to play in Madrid with still things are favourable for the Inter Milan because they can go through for the another win in this game if Atlético Madrid going to play like this.

Even we all know Atlético Madrid is one of the best in Spain, and they can go through as well, but this could be a nail-biting contest between these two sides which are now looking for the spot into last 8 after this end we have stilled all three spots for the game with most chances I am also sure draw could be likely going to happen which will allow to Inter Milan for jump into quarterfinal.
5  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Speculation (Altcoins) / Re: Altcoin season coming soon? on: Today at 01:50:55 PM
The start of the altcoin season was not so dynamic but today the market is quite volatile. But still many altcoins dump so it may not rocket fast and may take more time. So far many investors have been thinking about timing their buys but i think there may not be a more affordable market than this. Many new investors will jump into this bull market to invest but it must be the best investment but use your profit time.
Probably not anymore, but go back a couple of months and we have the best prices for altcoins when Bitcoin was just around $32k or something but investors weren't ready to accumulate back then because the market was quite stable and everyone was thinking that there might be another dip towards $25k before it starts going up but that didn't happen and the price of Bitcoin, surprisingly, went straight to $38k which is when retail investors realized that they have missed the train and the discounts are now gone.

Based on the fact that we are yet to witness the bull run as the halving event is coming up, the prices we have right now might not be bad, but one could get way more profit if they had bought earlier instead of waiting for the right time. There is no perfect time to enter the market, it's a fact.
6  Economy / Gambling discussion / Re: ⚽ Football Transfers Speculation, Odds and Predictions on: Today at 06:41:35 AM
The rumors about Zidane replacing Thomas Tuchel in Bayern Munich are just clickbait lies. I wonder why Zidane stayed without a football club several years after leaving Real Madrid. He must have some serious reason for this decision. I don't think that the owners of Bayern will be able to convince Zinedin Zidane to become the new coach of Bayern Munich. Maybe Bayern will join the competition for signing with Xabbi Alonso after the end of the season. I also hear rumors about PSG wanting to buy Marcus Rashford from Manchester United as a replacement of Mbappe. This doesn't seem serious to me. Rashford is definitely not a leader and he's in a bad shape.
There are also a lot of rumors about Antonio Conte and Bayern Munich. I don't find these reports very realistic either, but we all feel that Thomas Tuchel is at the end of the road. Thomas Tuchel's statistics are worse than Julian Nagelsmann's. Bayern Munich is one of the best clubs in the world and a natural leader in the German Bundesliga. If this team fails to achieve its goals, a change of manager is a natural consequence. However, I don't think Xabi Alonso will go to Bayern Munich because Liverpool is a more special place for him.
Most of the time as we have any big team down in performance we have too many rumours about changes because mostly media related peoples love to give their view even they are having no reliable sources about their news with Antonio Conte which is now related to Bayern Munich few days back I was checking few reports he is already settled deal with AC Milan management, and he could be led the team after end of this season but suddenly now as we have three matches losing streak from the Bayern Munich we have new rumour about Antonio Conte which is completely baseless because most chances if he is going to have chance he will prefer AC Milan instead of Bayern Munich.

But, we still can't predict about few things because these are having many consequences and players and coaches can change their mind at any team which is already happened many times.

So for the better result we have to wait till end of this season who is coming and who is going.
7  Economy / Gambling discussion / Re: Premier League Prediction Thread 2023/2024 on: February 20, 2024, 08:20:01 PM
City failing to win last week definitely caused a lot of trouble and they will get a win easily here because they will want it more. Sometimes the worst enemy of a good club could be complacency, they just realize how good they are and stop playing all that well and because of that they end up not getting wins all around.

I believe that the best thing to do in this case would be just focusing on how we could see City playing with 100% again. That Chelsea game made it possible for them to have a wake up call and because of that I honestly believe that they are going to be great again. This is why I believe that the best thing to do here would be betting on them to get a win, it would be quite possibly the only outcome.
8  Economy / Gambling discussion / Re: Buying and Selling of Casino Accounts (Discussion thread) on: February 20, 2024, 05:59:24 PM

The buyers also are aware this is risky that logging in to that bought account would result in getting busted.  Both buyers and sellers are untrustworthy and we know it is not allowed but they created a market for it. Sellers do have the idea of why someone would want to buy an account but if they were selling it still, maybe they are really in need of the money. They have their reasons.

The VIP accounts do have advantages and they get bonuses too which I guess is what interests those buyers.
Well, like they say, no risk no reward and then there might still be some practice that they do to ensure the safety of both parties. You already said that both parties have their own reasons but both are for the sake of earning money. People need money mostly for the good stuffs, so I won't immediately judge them and say that both are untrustworthy. Maybe on some gambling sites this kind of practice is legal?

And they think this makes them in-demand because sellers are going to work their account because they know there is also a demand for it and then buyers will use the account to play there. I won't say that they will only wait for the bonus without depositing as it may not get delivered or they will only get lesser amounts.
9  Economy / Gambling discussion / Re: La Liga (Spanish League) Prediction Thread 2023/24 on: February 20, 2024, 01:40:22 PM
Athletic club is a strong team, that is why it look as if Girona did not performed well the way people want it  through out the match because athletic club players have started using a particular pattern that is helping them to always defeated their opponent to embrace victory at the end of the match. I noticed something from the first half that made athletic club to scored one goal to reduce the pressure Girona map on them, just to win the match but the match turned to another level for Athletic club to scored more two goals to defeated Girona 3-2 to achieved three points. I know that Girona will not going to win this la Liga league title this season, because Real Madrid are in a good form to make it success to embrace the title to bring honor to their manager and fans.
Athletic Bilbao is still in hunting for the fourth spot with this performance now things are taking good change and in last 13 rounds we can expect good fight between all top teams because last few matches we have Girona losing their momentum and now having lost of 8 points is surely going to have good chance for others even all others are also losing points, but now things could be at his best for top four Athletic Bilbao is having good performance and now their difference is only seven points which is achievable in coming matches with their defense is doing good even their attack is still not good as we have other four teams.

Girona will be fight back, but now they need to be more aggressive if they want to keep things at this level which they have from the start of this season because this approach will give them good end until end of this season.

When we talk about the rise of online gambling, we can't forget to think about COVID-19 and the pandemic which was the biggest boost for the online gambling industry along with other industries that got boosted like e-commerce because of the closure of physical establishments all around the world and people were stuck in their homes for such a long time and were compelled to move from physical to online solutions for most of their works and activities.

Reports say that platforms and services have a 33% increase in their userbase and revenue post-pandemic compared to when they were operating before the pandemic. That shows how popular and widespread the online gambling industry became because of COVID-19 and the pandemic that hit the world by surprise.
11  Economy / Gambling discussion / Re: Have you ever introduced an elder gambler to online betting? on: February 20, 2024, 11:15:32 AM
Apart from that, it may be quite difficult for elderly people to get to know online gambling, apart from being technologically illiterate, but their understanding and memory are starting to wane, so it will be quite difficult to introduce gambling to them, not to mention their poor eyesight. has started to run away and with all its shortcomings it is very worrying that later when he joins online gambling and bets in it, he will make mistakes that he does not realize, such as increasing the bet amount accidentally or something else.
The elderly find it difficult to keep up with current technological developments and according to them, current technology is very advanced. Meanwhile, those who feel they have not followed technological developments from the start will not be able or have difficulty using it. And even though it has been explained many times, they probably won't understand it because they can't use it. Moreover, if we introduce online gambling, they might be even more confused about starting it. Therefore, we should not introduce online gambling to the elderly and let them do the activities they are used to.
Even if the elderly are interested in gambling and aren't forced into it, they still wouldn't show much interest in online gambling because in their times, there used to be no online gambling or stuff like that and they used to gamble at physical gambling establishments and they are in habit of them. They wouldn't like the online gambling environment because, to be honest, physical casinos are more fun to be in because of the thrill and everything.

You get to interact with other gamblers, you meet new people, you have conversations, drinks, food, and a bunch of other stuff that makes you wanna stay longer.

We talk about online gambling being more convenient and handy, they barely care about that because it's not fun and entertaining for them.
12  Economy / Trading Discussion / Re: Hi let me proof to you my signals follow my trading on: February 20, 2024, 05:05:23 AM
As said by other users, no one would be interested in signals that are shared without any analysis or anything because even a newbie can find a pattern like this and add it with random numbers and share it with the public saying this is a signal and it is for free but it doesn't mean that the signal will be good and effective.

So, I don't think you will find anyone willing to follow your signal(s) unless you decide to do some research with it and show us the analysis that you've done that made you reach this conclusion and then we might think about it. Even after that, I wouldn't recommend anyone blindly following the signals and always do your own research first before making a trade.
13  Economy / Gambling discussion / Re: Premier League Prediction Thread 2023/2024 on: February 19, 2024, 05:26:35 PM
Arsenal are flying higher as they flogged Burnley 5:0 away from home on Saturday,and their performance since the start of the new year is beginning to speak volume to other premier league teams and especially their rival to be careful because the gunners are really aiming higher and are waiting for the least mistake from Liverpool to claim that position.The reds are topping the table with two points and they really want to win the trophy for Klopp who is on the verge of leaving the club.However,the gunners will face Newcastle in their next game,and if they can win that match,then their moral will really be boosted.
At the end of 2023, having back to back defeats and then lost against Liverpool in The FA Cup bring back them into good form which is now giving them good dividend, and they are back for the title race even things are not easy, but they are currently best team in Premier League with their performance in 2024 5 out of 5 wins and score 21 goals are impressive which give shut up call for the all criticism which was happening due to their poor attack.

Now most chances tomorrow they could be at the third spot as Manchester City is hosting Brentford and most chances they will secure win after held by Chelsea at home but difference of two points from leaders Liverpool and remaining 13 games are going to have good chance for all top three teams to stay in connection for the title race.
14  Economy / Gambling discussion / Re: Italian League Prediction Thread (Serie A) on: February 19, 2024, 03:06:31 PM
AC Milan failed to take advantage of the draw achieved by Juventus this week, they actually had to suffer defeat in a match which was actually not too difficult for them, because the opponents they faced were not a very strong club if judged from their statistics this season. I think the problem is their concentration, the 4 goals scored by Monza all came in the final minutes when the match was about to finish. 2 goals at the end of the first half and 2 other goals at the end of the second half.
It was a shame when they didn't perform as expected and wasted their chance to be in 2nd place in the standings. So far there is only one club that is truly consistent, namely Inter Milan. They can always achieve good results in every match they play. This makes them closer to the Scudeto title this season.
AC Milan which was doing impressive job in last few weeks and having very good run missed a good chance for the jumping at the second spot with lost against Monza which is surely miserable for them late two injury time goals bring them down, and now they have to stay positive for doing things in coming weeks specially next week they are going to host Atlanta which is also hot with their impressive performance and things are going into their way for the staying into top four.

While they were playing against Monza after one hour play they were down by 2–0 and also having 1 red card super sub Pulisic entry give them good chance but all gone into van with two late goals now we have clear chance for the Inter Milan to stay at the top and Juventus and AC Milan try to stay at the second and third which need better performance.
15  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Solana network shuts down, will you still invest in SOL? on: February 18, 2024, 04:59:22 PM
SOL is still a decent short or mid-term investment despite the outages. It's still popular for airdrops launched by new projects there so no surprise that it's still climbing up. The issue of network stability and centralization of protocol can be ignored for now since it's halving but it will become relevant again when the whole crypto market goes south. Majority of those who invested will be cashing out for sure.
What about for the long-term? It can qualify for it since it was not a new coin anymore and there are occasions that its price can pump even without the help of the bull run and alt season. Cryptos are truly interesting and it's great that all are or most coins are seem to be given by a chance.

I remember it was ETH before who got a lot of new projects, then followed by Binance coin, etc... and now it was Solana. I can't tell if which will be next. Like past coins, it's normal that they experience an issue because of the heavy demand that they are getting but they will soon be given a chance to breathe clearer, once the hype transfers to another coin.
16  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Speculation (Altcoins) / Re: What altcoins would you invest $ 1,000,000 in? on: February 18, 2024, 03:34:32 PM
$10,000,000 is a the space equivalent for me to even imagine. Hypothetically if I have $1000000 then I must invest 50 percent in Bitcoin 40 percent in Ethereum and rest 10% in other altcoins (should be top position). Here I will not give myself to invest in any coin you provide. But I wouldn't go wrong with 50% of my bitcoin investment as I'm the highest risk taker and will take the risk between bitcoin and ethereum as I have the highest reliance on these coins.
It's only $1M not $10M though it's still a huge amount but nice composition you got there however with all of those amounts, are you sure? You can't even believe to have a money like that, so why will you only use it all for investment and why not use it first to fulfil your dreams? You know buying the luxurious items and stuffs. I'm pretty sure that once you avail all of them, there will still be plenty of money left in your stash.

I still won't use all of them though but I will set aside for emergency use and for the regular expenses. Back in your composition, you have 10 percent allocation for top altcoins and I think those 3 coins the OP listed are also among it, so why not?
17  Economy / Gambling discussion / Re: Have you seen gambling advertisements on TV? Opinion. on: February 18, 2024, 01:03:02 PM
Everyone know about that, but the reality there are still a lot young people become gambler or end up in other addictions. That's because the parents don't have much time to teach and control their children, most parents choose to work because they think money is the most important, so they leave their children to babysitters.

Babysitters don't care with your children, all they do is fulfill their job desk, that's all. They won't give more effort or special treatment like their' own children.
Parents aren't wrong in thinking that money is important because it's true, we live in a world where you can do nothing at all if you don't have money. However, good parents would find a way around it, which means that one parent would work and the other would stay at home with children, and the staying at home part is usually the mother's responsibility, or in most societies, women take care of the home and the men go out and work to earn a living for the family.

So what's important for parents is to make sure that their children's upbringing isn't disturbed because of their irresponsibility, while it's important to earn money, it's their duty to make sure that at least one parent stays around the children at all times.
18  Economy / Gambling discussion / Re: If a addict lives within, which method would you choose to help them on: February 18, 2024, 09:12:23 AM
What gambling addicts need is a personal approach that is relaxed and does not corner them. Because if you force a gambling addict to stop gambling in a harsh way, they will fight you and might leave the house. So a personal approach is probably the best way to convince gambling addicts to stop gambling. But if that method doesn't work, maybe the second method can be used.
The second method shouldn't be used because it's useless, you can't force someone to stop doing something unless they are willing to leave it themselves because, by force, they might show that they have left it, but once they have no one around, they will do the thing again because they were forced for it and they didn't do it themselves. So realization is the main thing in this matter, which is why one should try and make them realize that they are doing it the wrong way.

If the gambler doesn't realize that they are getting in trouble because of gambling and that they need to stop or at least reduce their gambling activities, they will never stop no matter what they do. So, sitting with them and explaining things in a proper way with love and affection might work, force won't work in this situation.
19  Economy / Gambling discussion / Re: 2024 NBA Season on: February 17, 2024, 08:31:41 PM
Bucks has lost 7 out of their last 10 games. Doc Rivers will probably not find any job at all in the NBA after this one. I am sure that he had some issues before this, I mean he shouldn't even be hired here, at this point I feel like he has buddies around the league that hires him, because if I owned a team, I would pay Doc Rivers not to coach my team, let alone pay him to coach it.

The fact that they fired their coach that made them so good, and just get one that made them so bad. Players are the same players, I don't know what changed so quickly but they just suck now. In any case, it is All-Star weekend, and we are going to have some fun times, it is going to be great tonight, I like it, the lack of defense is terrible for the past 10 years or so, but it is still fun to watch.
20  Economy / Gambling discussion / Re: Have you ever introduced an elder gambler to online betting? on: February 17, 2024, 07:44:23 PM
This is one of the main reason on why i dont really like o suggesting something on someone which it isnt really just that limited on gambling but also in investments as well on which we could
potentially be having those kinds introductions but im not really that a fan on sharing up something that im dealing with and just been said that i dont like on getting blamed.
It does feel suck when you get blamed for something you didn't do or intended to do. I do see some people getting blamed for introducing Bitcoin even though they clearly said buying it is risky and everyone should take proper measures before trading, yet nobody seems to care. I think this is just human nature where they tend to blame others instead of themselves first. That being said, some people who aggressively encourage people to participate without any risk-reward research do exist, and I believe people like this share the blame if somebody becomes a problem gambler or gets into financial trouble due to terrible investment, etc. The key difference lies in whether they tell you the risk and how often they tell the success story of the activity they're promoting imo.
The blaming nature of people is one of the biggest reasons why I don't recommend things that involve finances to people because I know that there is always a possibility of them blaming you for any loss that they have faced in the venture you have directed them towards while they wouldn't give you credit if they manage to profit from it. It's a bad thing but unfortunately, it's found in a lot of people and it makes them bad people even if they aren't generally bad.

This is why, one should never recommend gambling or cryptocurrencies or anything that might require them to use money unless they ask about them upfront, if they do ask about them themselves, that is when you can go ahead and give them some details but make sure to tell them about the risks involved.
